I was told by a trainer that you simply couldnt replace heavy leg exercises like squats and leg presses for maximum strength in your legs. Ill give those a try.
Well squats and leg presses definitely have their place, and for sure size and strenght he's right, they can't be replaced.
HOWEVER, for explosive power, flexibility, and endurance, you should surely incorporate these other things into your routine.
What that trainer should have told you is that you should incorporate EVERYTHING to maximize your gains. You'll never reach full potential by simply doing one or the other.
